Annual volumes for 2011 on the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX) registered a substantial growth of 110 percent from 2010 to reach 4,044,138 contracts, the highest ever annual volumes achieved by the exchange since inception. The annual volumes represent a value of $185.13 billion, according to a press release received here on Wednesday. In 2011, the exchange reached a major milestone of 10 million contracts since inception on Dec. 19. Since its launch in 2005, the exchange has so far traded 10,142,979 contracts, valued at $476 billion. As with last year, currencies drove the majority of volume growth on the exchange accounting for 88 percent of total contracts this year. Currency volumes in 2011 stood at 3,567,609, an increase of 177 percent from last year. Indian rupee futures retained its exceptional growth momentum over the last two years ending 2011 with 3,184,979 contracts, a 563 percent growth from 2010. Precious metals accounted for the remaining 11 percent of the exchange\'s total volumes registering 443,889 contracts. Silver futures emerged as the strongest performer of the year in the precious metals segment rising by 40 percent from 2010 to aggregate 44,870 contracts in 2011.

Stephen Gaterell, chief executive officer, DGCX, said, \"The exchange\'s performance in a year which saw increasing economic uncertainty is a testament to its ability to offer a unique platform to manage and mitigate currency and commodity price risk. As we embark on 2012, we aim to further develop our technology infrastructure as part of offering an even better trading environment for our Members. We will also be looking to expand our product offering and diversify our business across other markets. The exchange is also considering measures to further increase liquidity and volume in existing futures contracts. With volatility high in today\'s economic environment, we expect greater trading volumes across precious metals, energy and currencies on DGCX.\" DGCX recorded an average daily volume of 15,736 contracts in 2011, an increase of 107 percent against 2010.
